In the magical world of street food in which we joyously roam, there are three distinct groups of merchants. First, those who offer the organ meat and miscellaneous innards, who are to be resolutely avoided. Secondly, those who offer the standard fare - chicken on a stick, rice cake, spicy sausages, and tofu of all stripes - who make an invaluable, though unimaginative, contribution to our daily nourishment. And lastly, the rara avis of haute cuisine, the true visionaries who combine flavours and ingredients to produce nothing short of culinary perfection. This woman near Myeong-dong adds crinkle-cut french fries to her corndog batter, her small way of making the world a better place.
